Transcript of What is Poetry?

Inspired
No right or wrong
Emphasis on creativity
Everyone has a different
concept of poetry


What is the Emphasis?
We are not looking at using poetry only as a unit of study, but more so as a tool or vehicle for elementary development.

Read Aloud, and read with expression.

Include poetry books in the class room. Students learn about poetry through reading and listening
.

How is poetry different from other forms of writing?
Why does poetry appeal to elementary students?
The focus is on enjoyment

Poetry appeals to elementary students because “it brings sounds and sense together in words and lines” (208).


Children are natural poets, poetry surrounds them at the play-ground as they sing jump-rope songs, or any rhythm clapping game. (209)


Why are poetic devices important for student’s understanding of poetry?
They allow children to access more complicated portions of language in a fun and meaningful way

Devices imitate sound and produce powerful images which can help children to make a more meaningful connection with poetry. As well, students can apply these devices to their own writing. (213)

Why is this essential for future learners?
Poetry can “increase young children's attention to the many possible uses and techniques of language.” (Elster, 48).

Students “learn patterns and rhythms with words that are essential for their future development as readers and writers” (212).

Adapting poetic curriculum for differentiated learning needs?
Adapting curriculum should be seen as a bridge to enriching student learning, not “dumbing it down.”
Adaptations that are made should be flexible and adaptable and address the learning needs of the individual student.
One of the primary goals of adapting the curriculum is to provide students with greater short term access to the curriculum and not a long term fix.
How Poetry is used outside of the unit.

So what is the bottom line?
Poetry can “increase young children's attention to the many possible uses and techniques of language.” (Elster, 48).
Students “learn patterns and rhythms with words that are essential for their future development as readers and writers” (212).

Why is this essential for future learners?

Why are poetic devices important in student’s understanding of poetry?

Onomatopoeia



Poets create compelling images through unexpected comparisons, repetition of sounds or words in a line or stanza, and imitating sounds
.


Poetic Devices!

Semantics

Four cueing systems cont’d

The repetition of the initial consonant sound in consecutive words or in words in close proximity

Alliteration

Metaphor-compares two unlike things

Simile- a comparison using like or as!


Comparisons

the use of the same vowel sound with different consonants or the same consonant with different vowels in successive words or stressed syllables, as in a line of verse.

Syntactical

Phonological

Four cueing systems

These techniques are called poetic devices
Why did we do this????
Avoid

Do’s and Don’t’s

Explaining vs. Showing

Overwhelming

Not bound by structure, or grammar
.


Freedom

Avoid
Memorization
Rule-bound forms
Over-analyzing poetry
“When we use poems, I feel good. This is because they make us be good. They help us be nice and good at recess.”

“Poetry is good for you. And it helps you. And I like it.”

The focus of poetry is in the development of creativity; however poetry can be used for the development of: memory, vocabulary, spelling, grammar and much more.

What are the Benefits of Poetry?

“Children are natural poets, and poetry surrounds them as they chant jump-rope rhymes on the playground, clap out rhythm of favourite poem, and dance in response to songs” (Tompkins 209).




“Children are Natural Poets”


“The more that you read the more things you will
know.
The more that you learn the more places you’ll go”

-Dr. Seuss

Embarking on the Journey of Inclusion with Poetry?
Question-and-Answer Relationship strategy
Questions from the material
Questions from students life
Some questions related to the authors material could be:

Did Humpty Dumpty die after his great fall?
Some questions from the children’s head could be:
When I look at the sky, what do stars resemble? Do they look like diamonds?
“If a couple of guys were up to no good, and started making trouble in my neighbourhood,” how could I resolve it?
Let's talk about PO-ETRY
Let's talk about you-and-me
